ISLAM: CRACKING THE CODE of an existential paradigm or manufactured reality where under leadership holds the power to define reality itself. To have the power to define reality is to OWN reality…and everything in it. The imperative to hold and maintain power becomes an existential mandate…and its success depends on the annihilation of everything and everybody refusing to exist in that reality…because in order to preserve the fabric of that reality, those living outside shouldn’t even exist and their mere presence presents an existential challenge to the officially sanctioned reality, the “owners” of that reality, everything in it, and of course their absolute power.
This paradigm represents not merely absolute TYRANNY. In its assertion of control over reality itself…ISLAM CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED IN UNKNOWABLE UNITS OF MEASUREMENT OR A DEFINITION THAT DEFIES DEFINITION. ISLAM IS NOTHING SHORT OF INFINITE RULE. AS SUCH IT IS NOT INACCURATE TO STATE THAT THE MANDATES ISSUED BY ITS COUNTLESS RIVALS SEEKING TO ASSERT THEIR AUTHORITY…IS “DIVINE” IN NATURE. AND INASMUCH AS SUCH RULERS POSSES THE AUTHORITY TO INVENT REALITY ITSELF, IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE AND IN FACT “HOLDS UP” THAT THERE IS ONE AND ONLY ONE ABSOLUTE TRUTH…IT IS SET FORTH IN A BOOK…AND IT IS NECESSARY TO LEADERSHIP TO MAINTAIN THEIR RULE, AND TO MAINTAIN RULE IS PRESERVE THE VERY (AND ONLY) REALITY IN WHICH IT MAY NOT ONLY RULE ABSOLUTELY…BUT EXIST. THE ONLY “TRUE” UNCERTAINTY IS WHICH FACTION OR INDIVIDUAL IS SUCCESSFUL IN ACQUIRING ENOUGH POWER TO CAUSE ITS “REALITY” TO BE REALITY…IN WHICH ALL OTHERS ARE NEGATED AND ALL TRACES OF THEM MUST BE OBLITERATED.
THIS THESIS IS OFFERED FOR CONSIDERATION AND DISCUSSION. ATTACKS ON ITS CONCLUSIONS AND ATTEMPTS TO SILENCE THE CONVERSATION ITSELVE WILL PROOVE CONCLUSIVELY THE THESIS PRESENTED HEREIN. IT IS THE OPINION OF THIS AUTHOR THAT THE FOLLOWING TREATMENT OF THE STATED THESIS HOLDS UP TO ANY AND ALL REASONABLE CHALLENGE. BASED UPON THE RULES OF LOGIC, DEDUCTION AND A FACTUAL BASED REALITY DERIVED FROM FACTUAL, VALUE NEUTRAL DATA…WOULD APPEAR IMPENETRABLE…IN A RATIONAL REALITY. THE ONLY AVENUE OF ESCAPING THE CONCLUSIONS STATED HEREIN IS TO DISMISS THE CONCLUSIONS OUTRIGHT AND DRAG THE CONVERSATION INTO AN ALTERNATIVE REALITY MANUFACTURED BY THOSE HOLDING POWER WHO DEPEND UPON IT ABSOLUTELY TO PERSERVE THEIR ABSOLUTE RULE. FROM A PURELY MORALY DETACHED PERSPECTIVE…IT IS ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT…AND IF RATIONAL MEN WISH TO EXIST AS INDIVIDUALS IN A REALITY DRAWN FROM PHYSICAL DATA AND PROVABLE PHENOMENA..THEN ISLAM MUST BE RESISTED…BEATEN BACK…AND DESTROYED AS A POTENTIAL THREAT THAT EXISTS NOT ON A POLITICAL LEVEL…BUT AN EXISTENTIAL ONE. IT IS THE EQUIVALENT OF LIVING IN THE SAME HOUSE WITH A TIGER. THE TIGER’S CONDUCT IS NOT “IMMORAL,” IT SIMPLY ACTS LIKE A TIGER BECAUSE THAT’S THE WAY TIGERS ACT. TO THE TIGER…THERE IS ONLY TO PREDATE AND CONVERT THE PREY INTO ENERGY TO FUEL AND PRESERVE ITS OWN EXISTENCE.
TURKISH PRESIDENT ERDOGAN SAID SOMETHING TO THE EFFECT THAT “DEMOCRACY IS THE TRAIN ON WHICH ISLAM RIDES TO VICTORY.” WITHOUT SEEKING TO UNSEAT THAT ANALOGY, I WOULD PROPOSE THE TIGER/ANTELOPE ANALOGY. THE TIGER EXISTS TO EXIST. TO EXIST THE TIGER MUST PREY UPON THE FOOD SOURCE AND CONVERT ITS MASS INTO ENERGY THAT CAN BE USED BY THE TIGER TO ACHIEVE ITS ONLY OBJECTIVE…THE ONLY “REALITY” THAT MAKES SENSE…WHICH IS TO EXIST AS A TIGER…IN A HOUSE…WITH AN ANTELOPE. THAT THE TIGER PREDATES UPON THE ANTELOPE IS THE ONLY CONTSTRUCT THAT MAKES ANY SENSE. IN FACT THERE IS NO CAUSE FOR OR INTELLECTUAL PRESMISE ON WHICH MERE SPECULATION OF “OTHER” PARADIGMS CAN STAND. SUCH MATTERS APPEAR ONLY AS INCOMPREHENSIBLE PHENOMENA WHICH ARE SIMPLY THE STUFF OF REFLEXIVE AND ELEMENTAL EXISTENCE NECESSARY FOR EXISTENCE. IT IS A SELF-PERPETUATING PARADIGM OF SINGULAR BRILLIANCE…UNIMAGINABLE POWER FOR ITS RULERS/OWNERS…AND SHEER MADNESS ON A SCALE THAT DEFIES ORDINARY HUMAN COMPREHENSION BECAUSE SUCH COMPREHENSION NOT ONLY FALLS SHORT…IT HAS NO PLACE IN THAT REALITY…IT DOESN’T EVEN EXIST…AND AS SUCH IS ANNIHILATED WHEREVER IT IS FOUND…BECAUSE IT SHOULDN’T BE THERE…IT CAN’T BE THERE…AND ITS ANNIHILATION IS SIMPLY THE ONLY ACTION PERMITTED IN THE REALITY OF ITS OWN CREATION. TO THE RATIONAL MIND…IT IS A NIGHTMARISH HELL GOVERNED BY SHEER MADNESS RULED BY ENTITIES DETACHED FROM THE VERY REALITY THAT THEY INVENT FOR THEMSELVES. THE “APOLOGISTS” AND “DEFENDERS” AND “DENIERS” OF THESE INESCAPABLE RATIONAL STATEMENTS OF FACT ARE AKIN TO OTHER OTHER ANTELOPE INSIDE THE SAME HOUSE URGING THE TIGER ON AND SIMULTANEOUSLY DENOUNCING ISRAEL (I MEAN THE LONE ANTELOPE) NOT ONLY FOR CALLING THE TIGER A TIGER…BUT FOR ITS EFFORTS TO ELUDE PREDATION.
I SURE HOPE THIS ANALYSIS IS FLAWED AND I INVITE ALL WHO WOULD WISH TO DO SO. STICK THE ANALYSIS…CONTAIN THE DISCUSSION TO THAT WHICH CAN HOLD UP IN A PHYSICAL, OBSERVABLE DATA DRIVEN REALITY THAT IS SHAPED BY THE REASONED AND LOGICAL CONCLUSIONS THAT HOLD UP IN SUCH A REALITY AND WHICH ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. A UNIVERSE OF ABSOLUTE TRUTHS CANNOT ACCOMODATE AN “ALTERNATIVE UNIVERSE” THAT ARE NOT BUILT OF THE SAME ABSOLUTE TRUTHS. IN FACT THE MUSLIM UNIVERSE OF ABSOLUTE TRUTH LACKS INTELLECTUAL FOUNDATION NOT MERELY FOR SUCH A CONCEPT…BUT THROUGH ITS PROHIBITION ON INQUIRE DOES NOT EVEN TOLERATE OR PROVIDE A CONCEPT..FOR CONCEPTUALIZTION. IT IS A WORLD…A “REALITY”…OF SHEER AND UTTER MADNESS. TO ARGUE IN ITS DEFENSE IS THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE FORM OF FOOLISHNESS (IF NOT OUTRIGHT MENTAL DISORDER) AND TO SURVIVE IN IT MEANS TO EXIST IN IT AND TO EXIST IN IT MEANS TO JOIN THE HERD BARELY STAYING AFLOAT IN AN EXISTENTIAL SEA THAT IS WHATEVER THE OWNERS SAY IT IS AND ONLY AT THE SHEER AND ABOSOLUTELY ARBITRARY PLEASURE OF THOSE SAME OVERLORDS OF ALL OF REALITY ITSELF. THEREFORE TO “SURVIVE” IN IT MEANS TO SURRENDER REASON AND “CEASE TO EXIST” IN THE REASON-BASED REALITY THAT SERVES AS OUR CURRENT HABITAT…AND ENTER A UNIVERSE WHERE THE RULES SUPPORTING REASON BASED EXISTENCE FAIL UTTERLY. IN A VERY BIZARRE AND SCARY LINE OF THINKING…IN THE FACE OF SUCH OVERWHELMING FORCE…ENTERING THE QUANTUM REAL OF ISLAM IS THE “RATIONAL” CHOICE. BUT THAT IS THE CASE ONLY INSOMUCH AS THE INDIVIDUAL’S PRIMARY AND EXCLUSIVE GOAL IS TO EXIST. BUT TO LIVE…AS OPPOSED TO MERELY EXIST…THE ONLY PATH IS TO RESIST CAPTURE AND CAPTIVITY IN A MUSLIM “AUTHORIZED” REALITY…CRUSH THOSE WHO SEEK TO RIP THEM FROM REASON-BASED REALITY AND CAST THEM INTO CAPTIVITY IN A QUANTUM REALM…AND REALIZE THAT THEIR WOULD-BE CAPTORS EXIST FOR THE PURPOSE FOR THEIR CAPTURE…ASSIMILATION…OR DESTRUCTION.
ISLAM IS LITERALLY…THE BORG. RESISTANCE MAY BE FUTILED…BUT FOR THOSE WOULD LIVE RATHER THAN MERELY EXIST…IT IS THE ONLY CHOICE. IN FACT IT IS THE ONLY PATH WHICH ITSELF SERVES AS THE VERY INDIVIDUAL REALITY TO WHICH THEY CLING AND TO WHICH THEY OWE THEIR VERY EXISTENCE. AROUND THEM…ALL AROUND THAT NARROW STRIP OF INVIDIDUAL REALITY…IS THE INFINTE VOID OF SPACE. AMERICA IS BATTLESTAR GALLACTICA…THE ONLY HOPE FOR HUMANITY…RESISTING ANNIHILATION BY THE CYLONS. IT IS “US OR THEM,” BECAUSE THEY MAKE IT SO. DISASSEMBLE THE REASONING OF THIS ANALYSIS…OR ACCEPT FROM A RATIONAL STANDPOINT, THAT IN A REASON BASED REALITY…THERE IS NO OTHER REASONABLE INTERPRETATION OF THE DATA AND CIRCUMSTANCES.
ISLAM IS THE TIGER THAT PREDATES UPON EVERYTHING THAT IS NOT ISLAM. EVERYTHING THAT IS NOT ISLAM IS EITHER A PREY ANIMAL…OR A RIVAL TIGER COMPETING FOR THE SAME TERRITORY. NON-MUSLIMS ARE PREY TO BE HUNTED, TAKEN DOWN, TORN APART AND CONSUMED FOR ITS FUEL AND THE SUPPLIES NECESSARY TO SUSTAIN ITS VERY EXISTENCE. ANY “NOT-TRUE” MUSLIM IS A RIVAL TIGER TO BE DESTROYED…ONCE AGAIN THE CASE THAT THE ANNIHILATION OF ALL OTHER TIGERS EXIST SOLELY AS RIVALS FOR TERRITORY AND FOOD SOURCES. “TRUE ISLAM”…IS THE TIGER THAT ESTABLISHED ABSOLUTE AND EXSLUSIVE AUTHORITY WITHIN THE ONE AND ONLY “HOUSE” THAT WE CALL EARTH. TO SUCCESSFULLY REFUTE THIS CONCLUSION ON THE BASIS OF RULES THAT APPLY IN A RATIONAL WORLD ARE NOT READILY APPARENT. IN A RATIONAL UNIVERSE SUCH A POSSIBILITY IS NOT DISMISSABLE OUTRIGHT…BUT I SEE NONE…AND REMAIN DEEPLY SKEPTICAL THAT ONE EXISTS OR WILL BE OFFERED. MORE OVER…FOR THE RATIONAL THINKING INDIVIDUAL…TO REJECT THE CONCLUSIONS REACHED HEREIN…AND SUBSCRIBE THE MANUFACTURED “REALITY” OF MUSLIM AUTHORSHIP THAT IS NECESSARY TO A COHERENT (AND EXLUSIVE) MUSLIM EXISTENCE…IS BEST DESCRIBED AS A MANIFESTATION OF FOOLISHNESS ON A SCALE I WOULD PERSONALLY HAVE THOUGHT IMPOSSIBLE. FOR ME A MORE FITTING DESCRIPTION IS THAT THE NON-MUSLIM DEFENDERS OF ITS SINGULAR CHARACTERSITC PATTERN….IS SHEER…UNCONDTIONAL…UNQUALIFIED…TOTAL AND ABSOLUTE…MADNESS.
Freedom of speech…ESSENTIAL to the invidividual liberties, civial rights and creative freedom enjoying in the United States cannot coexist with Islam. Where there is Islam there is no freedom of speech and where there is no freedom of speech there is no freedom. As much of America led by her great America hating president march forward in support of “anti-hate speech” laws overlooked is the fact that ISLAM is ITSELF a GRAND ANTI-HATE SPEECH LAW with a belief system built around it that MANDATES VIOLENT CONFLICT. It is a system of FASCISM whereby the state suppresses all manner of opposition to its rule by CRIMINALIZING OPPOSITION. While fascism roots out and crushes what might be viewed as political opposition and competing political views, policy initiatives and ideology, FASCISM’S PRIMARY TARGET IS TRUTH ITSELF.
The structural support of Islam is based on “absolute truths.” These absolute truths cannot be proven…they simply ARE. Merely to QUESTION or EXPRESS DOUBT as to the absoluteness of their truthness is a CRIMINAL OFFENSE. This system DEMANDS ABSOLUTE OBEDIENCE to the ABSOLUTE TRUTHS on which it is constructed. Entire societies constructed on this foundation literally depend upon the absolutely sacred status of these core absolute truths. The members of these societies literally have NO CHOICE BUT TO ACCEPT THESE ABSOLUTE TRUTHS AS ABSOLUTELY TRUE. The GUIDING “INTELECTUAL” PARADIGM in Islamic society consists of the following construct:
“It is so…because it so written. It is so written…because it is so.”
To QUESTION THAT CONSTRUCT IS TO COMMIT THE CRIME OF “BLASHPHEMY.” What then is “blasphemy?” Answer: THAT WHICH IS BLASPHEMOUS.
To the RATIONAL MIND that relies upon DATA and PROVEN facts which take priority over THEORIES that are in turn not merely subject to but DEPENDENT UPON INQUIRY for their legitimacy.
ONLY in this context can the absurd and truly bizarre declarations emanating from the Muslim world be absorbed into a rational paradigm. Put another way, it is a system utterly detached from physical reality and when the “abosolute truths” collide with physical realty…physical reality is ATTACKED as BLASHPHEMOUS. “BLASHPHEME” serves the role of “HATE SPEECH.” BLASHPHEME IS DEFINED BY WHOMEVER HOLDS (OR ASSERTS TO HOLD) THE AUTHORITY TO DEFINE IT.
But merely to DEFINE “blasheme” is meaningless with the POWER necessary to ENFORCE IT. This is ESSENTIAL TO UNDERSTANDING THE PERPETUAL VIOLENCE plaguing Muslim societies. Islam’s uniquely intolerant premise DEMANDS THAT THERE IS ONE AND ONLY ONE “TRUTH.” When combined with the prohibition on “inquiry” (ie., dialogue, speculation, hypothetical argumentation, discussion, compromise, etc.) this UNWAIVERING FIDELITY TO THE PRINCIPLE THAT THERE IS ONE AND ONLY ONE “TRUE” VERSION OF THE ONE AND ONLY “ABSOLUTE TRUTH” MANDATES THE ANNIHILATION OF ALL COMPETING THEORIES, BELIEF SYSTEMS, CULTURAL PRACTICES AND IDEAS ALONG WITH SUCH WORDS, IMAGES, ARTWORK, LITERATURURE, MUSIC AND OTHER FORMS OF EXPRESSION DEEMED IN THE EYE OF ANY MUSLIM TO VIOLATE THE INVIOLATE ABSOLUTE TRUTHS THAT COMPRISE THE FIXED UNIVERSE WHICH ISLAM CREATES FOR ITSELF AND THEN OCCUPIES. THE MERE PRESENCE OF ANYBODY LIVING IN A MANNER NOT ABSOLUTELY COMPLIANT WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF “THE” ISLAMIC UNIVERSE THREATENS THE VERY FABRIC OF THAT UNIVERSE. IT IS THE CASE THAT THEY LITERALLY SHOULD NOT BE THERE. THEIR PRESENCE ISN’T MERELY IRRATIONAL…IT IS INCOMPREHENSIBLE AND IT THEREFORE MUST BE ANNIHILATED.
THE ANNIHILATION OF ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING THAT FALLS SHORT OF ABSOLUTE CONFORMITY WITH THE ABSOLUTE TRUTHS HOLDING ISLAM TOGETHER BECOMES AN EXISTENTIAL MANDATE. The word “divine” is used instead of “existential,” and the term “blaspheme” is used in place of “disagree, doubt, question, hesitate, obey unconditionally” which in turn may easily be used in place of “hateful, racist, disrespectful, insulting, offensive, or “anti-Islam.” UNDER THIS PARADIGM…to the extent that even ACTUAL FACTS DRAWN FROM THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE AROUND US FAIL TO COMPLY ABSOLUTELY WITH THE REQUIREMENT OF ABSOLUTE COMPLIANCE LEADS TO THE RESULT WE SEE TODAY WHEREIN TO STATE FACTUAL DATA THAT MUSLIMS DON’T LIKE TO HEAR IS INTERPRETED AS AN ATTACK ON ISLAM ITSELF.
In a very real sense this is in fact accurate. For it IS THE CASE THAT THE MUSLIM UNIVERSE (or “reality”) is based upon “absolute truths” that simply cannot accomodate the realities of the physical world we live in. To CITE FACTUAL DATA THAT CONTRADICTS OR THROWS INTO DOUBT OR DISPROVES THE “ABSOLUTE” TRUTHS ON WHICH ISLAM IS CONSTRUCTED DOES IN FACT “TEAR DOWN” THE EXISTENTIAL HABITAT IN WHICH ISLAM CAN EXIST. UNDER ISLAM THE INDIVIDUAL IS FORBIDDEN FROM DISCERNING FOR HIMSELF THE NATURE OF REALITY…BUT MUST ACCEPT AS ABSOLUTE TRUTH THAT WHICH HE IS INSTRUCTED IT IS.
WHILE COMPREHENSIBLE TO THE RATIONAL MIND, IT IS NO EXAGGERATION TO STATE THAT THIS PARADIGM IS NOTHING SHORT OF SHEER MADNESS. NO MATTER WHAT THE DATA PROVIDE, ISLAM REQUIRES THAT THE DATA BE REJECTED (IN FACT ANNIHILATED) IN FAVOR OF THE (DISPROVEN) FACTUAL DATA. ONLY IN THIS CONTEXT CAN THE SEEMINGLY IMPOSSIBLE STATEMENTS AND ASSERSIONS OF FACT “MAKE SENSE” TO THE RATIONAL MIND. IN SPITE OF EVERY SCRAP OF EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY, MUSLIMS (AND THEIR DEFENDERS) DECLARE AS FACT THAT ISLAM IS A “RELIGION OF PEACE AND TOLERANCE.” TO THE RATIONAL MIND SUCH A CONCLUSION IS WHOLLY UNSUPPORTED AND UNSUPPORTABLE. LACKING ALL EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT IT THIS CONCLUSION IS USED AS A SWORD TO STRIKE DOWN ANY AND ALL FACTUAL DATA THAT SURFACES IF IT PRODUCES FACTUAL DATA THAT SUPPORT THE ABSOLUTELY OPPOSITE CONLUSION. PUT ANOTHER WAY, IN THE MUSLIM UNIVERSE (OR “REALITY”) IT IS ACTUALLY THE CASE THAT ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF “PEACE AND TOLERANCE” AND UNDER THE LAWS OF ISLAM IT IS A CRIMINAL ACT TO NOT COMPLETELY ACCDEPT THAT ABSOLUTE OR DIVINE TRUTH.
Non-Muslim reality depends almost entirely on observable, verifiable, testable, repeatable quauntitave reasoning guided by logic and fueled by ACTUAL FACTUAL DATA. The Muslim world depends upon a handful of basic absolute truths which in turn, in order to be “true,” MUST OBLITERATE ALL TRACES OF LOGIC AND REASON AND SMASH INQUIRY THAT WILL INEVITABLY LEAD TO THE CONCLUSION THAT THE SO-CALLED “ABSOLUTE TRUTHS” OF ISLAM ARE THE INVENTED FANTASIES OF THE AUTHOR OF A BOOK DESIGNED TO CULTIVATE ABSOLUTE OBEDIENCE SO THAT SUCH MEN COULD BE RULED OVER ABSOLUTELY BY ABSOLUTE TYRANTS. REALITY ITSELF IS NOT THE INDIVIDUAL’S TO DECIDE BUT IS WHATEVER THE VESTED AUTHORITIES STATE IT TO BE. SUCH SUBJECTS IT IS A LOGICALLY REASONED CONCLUSION TO STATE THAT MEMBERS OF MUSLIM SOCIETY WHO LIVE IN A MANUFACTURED REALITY LITERALLY RELY UPON THEIR AUTHORITIES FOR THEIR VERY EXISTENCE. THIS IS NOT “SLAVERY” OR “TYRANNY.”
RATIONAL MEN LACK THE VOCABULARY TO DESCRIBE RULE ON THIS SCALE. AUTHORITIES IN SUCH SOCIETIES LITERALLY “OWN” REALITY AND WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT/APPROVAL THE “INDIVIDUAL” IS DENIED EXISTENCE ITSELF. THE INDIVIDUAL HAS THE CHOICE EITHER TO EMBRACE THIS PARADIGM…OR CEASE TO EXIST. AS THE LATTER OPTION PRESENTS A STATE OF EXISTISTENTIAL OBVLIVION…THE OBVIOUS CHOICE TO WHICH PEOPLE CONDITIONED TO OBEY AUTHORITY WITHOUT QUESTION IS TO EMBRACE THE REALITY…NO MATTER HOW ABSURD…FED TO THEM.
ONCE THE INDIVIDUAL SURRENDERS CONTROL OVER THEIR VERY REALITY TO THEIR…CAPTORS…THOSE CAPTORS LITERALLY RULE ABSOLUTELY OVER THE INDIVIDUAL AND MAY TELL THEM ANYTHING AND FULLY EXPECT THE CAPTIVE INVIDUAL TO ACCEPT IT AS ABOSLUTE TRUTH WITHOUT QUESTION. THIS IS NOT SO MUCH “SLAVERY” AS EXISTENTIAL OWNERSHIP. THE INDIVIDUAL EXISTS BECAUSE THE AUTHORITIES SAY THAT THEY DO. IF THE AUTHORITIES DECLARE THAT UP IS DOWN AND DOWN IS UP…THE INDIVIDUALS HAVE NO “CHOICE” BUT TO ACCEPT SUCH DECLARATIONS AS THE VERY FABRIC OF THEIR REALITY.
YOU MAY CALL ISLAM ANYTHING THAT SUITS YOU WHETHER IT BE A “RELIGION” OR A “LEGAL SYSTEM” OR A “POLITICAL MOVEMENT” OR ALL THE ABOVE AND MORE…BUT FOR ME THE MOST ACCURATE AND USEFUL DESCRIPTION IS ISLAM GRANTS AUTHORITY TO WHOMEVER CAN SEIZE AND HOLD AUTHORITY TO CREATE A REALITY BEST SUITED TO SERVE THEIR INTERESTS. RULERS IN MUSLIM SOCIETIES LITERALLY “OWN” REALITY AND THEIR SUBJECTS OBEY IT BECAUSE THAT REALITY LITERALLY MANDATES THAT THEY DO BECAUSE TO NOT OBEY IT ABSOLUTELY UNDERMINES THE VERY PREMISE OF THEIR EXISTENCE. PUT ANOTHER WAY, THE INVIDIVUDAL HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO OBEY BECUASE NOT TO DO SO WOULD RESULT IN THEIR OBLIVION.
THIS IS A LOGICAL AND REASONED ANALYSIS. ITS CONCLUSIONS ARE SUBJECT TO DISAGREEMENT. ISLAM HAS NO ANSWER FOR SUCH ANALYTICAL EXERCISES. TO SUPPORT THE UNIVERSE OF ITS OWN CREATION IT IS NECESSARY THAT ISLAM DO WHATEVER BECOMES NECESSARY TO PREVENT THE ANALYSIS FROM BEING PERFORMED. WITH INQUIRY, ISLAM CANNOT EXIST. ISLAM THEREFORE FACES THE CHOICE OF EITHER CRUSHING INQUIRY…OR CEASING TO EXIST. THAT FINAL CONCLUSION, INTERESTINGLY, MAKES COMPLETE SENSE.
I am reminded of a particularly awesome two-part episode of “Star Trek Next Generation” wherein Captain Picard is captured by the Cardasians with the objective of obtaining the Star Fleet defense codes that could be used to destroy Star Fleet. Picard is interrogated by a Cardasian who employs various physical torments but they are designed not to extract the defense codes directly…but instead to grind Picard down to the point where his captor takes ownership of Picard’s very reality. He knows that once Picard gives in to this fundamental existential building block on which rests Picard’s very reality and his very existence in it as a sentient and self aware individual…then Picard is doomed to exist in whatever reality the Cardasian feeds him. For any individual this would be a horrific fate, but to a man of Picard’s unusual intelligence…sense of duty…moral conflict…ethical demands…and above all else individual CHOICE…it is a fate of hellish quality that exceeds comprehension within the world of reason he would be leaving behind. He is FORCED to choose between unending physical torture..or surrender all that he is to this his Cardasian captor who would then LITERALLY hold the keys to Picard’s very existence.
The Cardasian goes about the task of ripping from Picard’s his existence as an individual by interrupting the regimen of physical torture, various deprivations and pschological abouse with a very “simple” request. Above Picard there is an array of bright lights. The Cardasian promises that all the torment will stop…if Picard will only admit that which is not true in Picard’s observation based reality. They BOTH know that once Picard gives in to this…monstrous fraud…he will no longer have ANY control over his reality and his very existence within it as an individual person OF FREE WILL. There are FOUR lights shining down brightly on Picard. The Cardasian states as fact that there are THREE. Picard resists…and resists…and resists. “There are FOUR lights,” he proclaims to preserve his very existence as a self aware individual of free will. Again and again…his unfathomably cruel and sadistic DEMANDS that Picard acknowledge that what he SEES is what he is TOLD to see. “There are THREE lights,” insists the Cardasian…over and over and over. Picard is rescued (it is an AWESOME episode) and after recovering from his ordeal admits that he came very close to succumbing to the demands of his captor knowing full well the implications. More over, had he not been rescued, it would have been only a matter of time before he did. With that in mind…as he was being carried off by crew members…Picard musters all his strength and out of ultimate defiance yells at his captor: “There are FOUR LIGHTS.” Picard escapes…narrowly…with his identity as an individual and an existence within a reality of his own description, experience and understanding.
Over and over…we are subjected to MANY outrageous assertions with absolute sincerity, but none more so than this: “Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance.” Whether or not that statement is true matters far less than the fact that Muslims very much appear if not universally then very close to it that that is a statement of absolute truth, to question it can only be explained (and dismissed) as either the thinking of dysfunctional mind…or an ATTACK on Islam (aka, “anti-Islam”). It is anti-Islam because Muslims say so. It serves not as a statement of simple fact…but a fundamental part of the exslusive reality which depends upon that fact existing as a matter of the very reality it supports. “That’s the way it is…because I say so,” says the parent to a child. To assert unquestioned authority over what “is,” the very structure and dynamics of their relationship depends upon the unquestionable existential fact that what “is” is…based on the parent’s ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY OVER THE CHILD. For the parent to TOLERATE discussion itself after proclaiming “because I say so” would be to tolerate a direct threat of their role as PARENT in a reltionship (universe) where they are the parent in the senior role and the child is the junior member who MUST accept WHAT IS…when the OFFICIAL of “what is” STATES what IT…is.
As part of the fabric reality…to contest that assertion that “Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance is not merely “irrational” in that reality…but to the extent it purports to challenge one of the absolute truths on which rests the Muslim paradigm of reality, it IS accurate to say that it is “anti-Islam” because it is to LITERALLY DENY ONE OF THE ESSENTIAL BUILDING BLOCKS OF THE MANUFACTURED REALITY OF ITS MUSLIM BUILDERS.
MUSLIMS live in a world where no matter WHAT the phsyical envidence supports…there are FOUR LIGHTS. In order for NON-Muslim individuals of reason to maintain control over their very sense of reality it becomes EXISTENTIAL IMPERATIVE to REJECT what they know to NOT be the case…and in defiance of their would-be masters declare on the basis of their own observations that which they perceive and KNOW to be true: THERE ARE FOUR…LIGHTS! To accept the tirelessly repeated declaraction that “Islam is a relgion of peace and tolerance” is to accept that which simply does not hold up as a reasonable statement in a reality governed by logic, reason and the fundamental natural laws which both define and govern it. The Muslim world DEMANDS of others that they ACCEPT AS REALITY THAT THERE ARE BUT THREE LIGHTS. To YIELD TO THIS FARCE IS TO SURRENDER REALITY AND ONE’S ENTIRE EXISTINCE AS AN INVIDUAL OF FREE WILL. TO CONCEDE THIS POINT NOT ONLY SURRENDER CONTROL OVER REALITY…BUT REPRESENTS THE FINAL ACT OF FREE WILL ITSELF…BY WHICH THE INDIVIDUAL CEASES TO EXIST IN THE REALITY OF ITS OWN UNDERSTANDING BASED UPON THE EXERCISE OF FREE WILL TO DETERMINE FOR ITSELF…THE SUPPORTABLE AND RATIONAL TRUTH THAT WHATEVER CATEGORY OR DESICRIPTION ASSIGNED TO IT, ISLAM IS A REALITY UNTO ITSELF THAT REQUIRES AND DEMANDS THAT ALL PEOPLE ACCEPT THE ABSURD “TRUTH” THAT IT A RELIGION OF PEACE AND TOLERANCE, BUT IS INSTEAD…A FORMULA FOR ABSOLUTE INTOLERANCE, UNRESOLVABLE CONFLICT AND UNENDING VIOLENCE AIMED TO SECURE THE EXCLUSIVE AUTHORITY TO DICTATE HOW MANY LIGHTS THERE ARE.
SURELY…the reasonable man of free will will understand the signifance of this CONTEST for control over reality…and to his last breath if need be…SHOUT FOR ALL THE WORLD TO HEAR…THAT THERE ARE FOUR LIGHTS. Islam is a reality unto itself aimed at the exclusive goal of ANNIHILATING EVERYTHING THAT DOES NOT BOW TO THE STATEMENTS OF FACT WITHIN THAT REALITY OF ITS OWN CONSTRUCTION. This is a form of madness that is impossible for the rational mind to wrap itself around. For one held captive within the borders of that fixed universe where abslute truths trump observable reality and free will…merely to QUESTION such absolute truths is nothing less than a threat to their own existence and more over comes to represent a threat TO EXISTENCE ITSELF for ALL WHO INHABIT THE FANSTICAL MUSLIM “REALITY” WHICH IS WHATEVER ITS CONTRACTORS/LENDERS/OWNERS SAY IT IS.
THE DIFFICULTY I HAVE IS TO HEAR DAY AFTER DAY THE RELENTLESS DRUMBEAT THAT THERE ARE THREE LIGHTS. WHILE IT CANNOT BE AVOIDED…IT ALSO POSES THE THREAT OF DRIVING ME MAD AND REQUIRES THAT I STEP BACK WITH FREQUENCY IN ORDER THAT I MIGHT RETURN TO THE REALITY OF MY UNDERSTANDING WHERE I MAY OPERATE ACCORDING TO ITS RULES, MAKE INDIVIDUAL CHOICES THAT AFFECT THE QUALITY OF MY LIFE BASED UPON A MORAL CODE OF MY OWN DESIGN. BUT…to ACCEPT THAT “ISLAM IS A RELGION OF PEACE AND TOLERANCE” IS THE EQUIVALENT OF ACCEPTING THAT THERE ARE “THREE LIGHTS” WHEN IN FACT…BEFORE OUR VERY EYES…ISLAM BREEDS, OFFERS AND BRINGS WITH IT EVERYPLACE IT GOES NOTHING BUT INTOLERANCE, DEMANDS, HATRED, RACISM AND VIOLENCE (WHILE ACCUSING ALL OTHERS OF THOSE VERY THINGS)…WHICH IS TO SAY IN OTHER WORDS:
THERE ARE FOUR LIGHTS!
[NOTE TO SG: The following was written yesterday…what appears above was written this morning. Maybe two different posts? I gratefully leave such things to your judgment]
The First Amendment appears first in the Bill of Rights for a reason. The unfettered freedom to express words and ideas regardless of how others may feel about them is the lynchpin on which hang ALL other Civil Rights and Civil Liberties. Proponents assert that so-called “hate speech” laws will “purge hatred” from American society. This proposition is fatally flawed. Proposed laws aiming to ban specific speech will serve only to undermine freedom of speech AND set the precedent for violating the letter and spirit of all the remaining Civil Rights contained in the United States Constitution. No matter how virtuous may be the purported goal of these laws the effect will be the elimination of freedom of speech…America’s most essential civil liberty…and in so doing will fundamentally transform American society by turning a nation of civil freedoms protected by the Bill of Rights into a repressive society where citizens expressing their opinions may be prosecuted as criminals.
While well intentioned these so-called “hate speech” laws will backfire on a devastating scale. Very likely it is the case that many of the people supporting these laws and supporting their chief proponent possess a fundamental lack of understanding as to their nature and what will be their effect. Among other things the primary focus of this broadcast will be to correct those misunderstandings and alert citizens to the grave dangers these laws pose not just to freedom of speech but ALL civil rights and individual liberties currently enjoyed in America and receiving LEGAL PROTECTION in the United States Constitution. In an era of wild exaggeration, absurd comparisons and reckless hyperbole, it is NO exaggeration to say that the successful passage of these hate speech laws will obliterate whatever freedom we as American citizens enjoy today and that will be enjoyed by ALL future generations.
These hate speech laws threaten the very structure and essence of American society. They will not purge hate but instead provide corrupt rulers to manipulate those laws to suit their own interests and persecute opponents on the false basis that their speech or activities violate them. This paradigm results only in the establishment of repressive government that solidifies its grip on power by exploiting and expanding laws aimed at the criminalization of “hate speech.” The most obvious danger inherent in these laws is that “hate” lends itself to a multitude of meanings each of which is the stuff of deeply subjective individual beliefs. What one person may find “merely offensive” or even “humorous” may well be in the realm of “hate speech” to another. The fair and predictable definition, interpretation and adjudication of these laws are utterly impossible for even the most benign leadership to manage. In the hands of less than benign rulers they are the building blocks for tyranny.
Inasmuch as “hate” is simply one of many words available to stand in for the essence of the value system of the society who adopts such laws. For example, while one society may seek to ban all speech that they deem “hateful” another society seeking the same end could very easily substitute another word for “hate.” With STUNNING clarity this example is seen in Muslim societies where the word “blaspheme” stands in place for words such as “hate, insulting, offensive, disrespectful, ireverrant” and countless others. Once in power the leadership of a Muslim nation manipulates these laws in order to persecute and eliminate ALL political opposition as well as to criminalize such words and ideas and practices deemed in any way a threat to their hold on power. The results are predictable in producing fear that discourages the free and open exchange of ideas and superbly effective in oppressing and persecuting enemies, opponents, rivals and even critics of the current regime. The end product is the very type of leadership we see now across the Muslim world.
The adoption of so-called “hate speech” laws WILL OVERNIGHT transform a NATION OF LAWS into one of ARBITRARY RULE. Any number of words might serve as an alternative to “hate.” Terms used with great frequency today are “racist” and “hateful.” Others are “disrespectful, insulting, offensive.” When mere statements of fact are used in the course of discussion that offend Muslims we are told that such statements are “anti-Islam.” What is “anti-Islam” if not a synonym for those terms referenced above? It reduces to the elemental structure of “if it’s something I don’t want to hear, it’s banned,” period. This leads to the INEVITABLE SCENARIO WHEREIN SPEECH IS “BANNED” BECAUSE IT IS “BANNED SPEECH.”
And where do we see this PRECISE paradigm in operation? To a TEE…this is the very fabric of Islamic society where the WORD utilized in connection with “hate speech” laws is BLASPHEME. In Islamic societies it is the case that anything deemed insulting or offensive under the terms of that religion amounts to CRIMINAL OFFENSE. How do we know it falls under the purview of laws banning “blaspheme?” Because it is determined by those in power to be “blasphemous.” We are left with the NIGHTMARISH but very real world of Islam whereby one might be convicted of BLASPHEME…on the basis of using speech DEEMED blasphemous. And how do we know it’s blasphemous? Because it is…according to WHOMEVER YOU ASK.
The VIOLENCE we see ACROSS the Muslim world is ROOTED ENTIRELY in this PREPOSTEROUS AND UTTERLY UNGOVERNABLE premise that there is ONLY ONE WAY to “interpret” the holy texts of that religion. The formula is quite simply and LITERALLY: “It is because it is said to be so.” Or, “it’s blasphemy because it is blasphemous.” With NO room for disagreement or compromise (construed as DOUBT which is a CRIME punishable by DEATH) Muslims are left with NO ROOM TO PEACEFULLY RESOLVE DIFFERENT POINTS OF VIEW. “We are absolutely right, you are absolutely wrong.” Since compromise and even DIALOGUE are forbidden, each party says to the other: “Obey OUR absolute truth…or we MUST ANNIHILATE YOU.” This IS the SOCIAL PARADIGM WE SEE THROUGHOUT THE MUSLIM WORLD.
In American society today the supreme law and ultimate legal text is the United States Constitution. In Islamic societies the highest and ONLY true authority is the holy scripture of that religion known as the Quran. In America our highest court interprets the law based upon the language and principles set forth in the Constitution. The American government is set up in such a manner whereby the Supreme Court issues its ruling based on the body of precedent legal rulings on similar matters and their determination is HONORED by the other branches of the government at the federal level and to the extent applicable all the states AS THE LAW.
The issues surrounding that law may continue to be debated and interpretations still subject to dispute but for the time being the LEGAL issue is resolved. At this point there is the LAW, but American citizens enjoy the UNFETTERED FREEDOM TO CONTINUE THE DEBATE. I say again…there is on the one hand THE LAW, and on the other hand, there is THE DEBATE. These are SEPARATE AND APART FROM ONE ANOTHER. BUT…IF THE LAW IS TO FORBID THE DEBATE…then merely continue the DEBATE CONSTITUTES A CRIME. THAT is the basic structure of ANY law aimed as forbidding certain forms of speech. “It’s a violation of the anti-[fill-in-blank] law because…it like…violates the anti-[fill-in-blank] law.” Simply substitute in “hate,” “racist,” “anti-Islam,” and then the CRIME OF BLASPHEME…which lends itself only to the definition of: “It is blasphemous speech because it is…like…blasphemous speech.” This is the stuff of a Twilight Zone NIGHTMARE. This turns ENTIRE SOCIETIES INTO ASYLUMS FOR THE MENTALLY ILL where the STAFF DETERMINE REALITY AND THE INMATES HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO ACCEPT THAT REALITY REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEY MAY PERCEIVE. The ASSUMPTION is that the mental patient is incapable of distinguishing what is real from what is the product of a defective mind. The “natural laws” within that asylum are this: “Reality is what WE (the staff) TELL you it is. IF YOU DISAGREE IT IS ONLY BECAUSE YOU ARE INSANE.” Put another way, merely to disagree is the act of a LUNATIC. In this nightmarish hell, the “lunatic” has only the choice of accepting the reality told to it…OR be branded a “criminal” within that environment. To DISAGREE WITH or RESIST THE STAFF is not merely an act of disobedience, it is within that system a CRIME…and INSANITY IS ASSUMED.
